An Artemis Fowl and Fullmetal Alchemist crossover
Plot summary and notes
The People had declared war.
There is only one more nation to conquer before the surface is once more, theirs. However, the fabled lost nation of Amestris may prove be a tougher nut to crack…
A/N: I’m not really sure what inspired this. Ishval? I don’t even know how my thoughts doubled back to fairies… So, anyway, you will need a pretty good understanding of the AF-verse to understand it, but hopefully, nothing more than the first book. FMA-verse… Meh. It will explain itself. I think. It helps if you had a basic understanding of the settings of both fandoms, but I assure you, there WILL be a measure of made up stuff. There will also be OCs, but my OCs tend to be minor charries, or villains. In this fic, my OCs are minor fairy officers. Cuz there just aren’t enough in cannon. A dollar says that they’ll be dead before the half-way mark of the fic. (The OCs, of course. I just can’t bring myself to kill off the main charries… or at least, some main charries. Who am I kidding? I’ll probably kill off more characters in this fic than some other writers in their entire fanfiction career.)
At this point, I don’t know about character deaths yet, but I predict a high possibility of Butler and Alphonse(or Winry) biting it. It’s unconfirmed though. Also, with shippings. I enjoy keeping my fics relatively ship-free. There will be very tiny hints but you probably won’t see it without squinting over it at least twice.
As for OOCness, I hope to capture Artemis perfectly(though at some points, I may make him too Turnball. Tell me if that’s the case). Ed may be a bit off. But I have intended that. Please, tell me what you think of the OOCness.
Also, one more thing before the disclaimer. This is strictly AU, which means that there’s a high probability of the bending of various charries’ histories.
PS: You can also find this on FF.net, by the same title. Posted by CelestialSands, my PenName there.
Disclaimer: Artemis Fowl and Fullmetal Alchemist do not belong to me. They belong to Eion Colfer and Hiromu Arakawa respectively. I do not intend to make any profit from this fic, and I certainly do not claim anything besides various OCs and the basic plot as mine. Oh, and a few locations. It is AU after all.
Continue on…(seriously, sorry about that monster of an A/N. I like to ramble. A LOT)

A plan. That was all he had.
The fairy authorities thought that he was broken. Why wouldn’t they? From what they saw, he was someone who just sat there, staring into space, occasionally sitting cross-legged, barely eating and sleeping badly. A legend defeated by solitary confinement. An expert in the sentient mind, losing his.
The truth is, he was doing what he did best, all this while. He was observing. Thinking. Planning. He was a master of deception. He will not bend under silence. In fact, he needed silence.
Soon, he would slip away right under their noses. Not yet, though. Not yet. Patience was a virtue he held close, and upheld. He could wait. A day, a week, a month, a year… what’s the difference when the war that was above his head had been raging on for three long years?
I will escape. As soon as I finish my little project.
He drew a piece of paper out of his pocket. No, not paper. A photograph. His index fingers traced the elfin features of the officer in the picture. A single moment, caught by a digital camera and frozen on the photo till time faded every last blot of ink from the paper. A familiar face that he missed ridiculously much. On the flip side of the card, written in her chunky gnomish handwriting, was the message on which he had based his entire plan.
Don’t give up. You’ll always have friends on the outside.
“Holly,” he said, fingering the symbols. His face, turned away from the surveillance cameras, bore his trademark vampire smirk. He was very, very close.
